1 A Clash of Systems The ambiguity of colonialism remains deeply entrenched in public international law even today. Whereas on the one hand, colonial history still appears to cast a shadow on international relations, we need to acknowledge on the other that the universalisation of

The primary focus of the Journal of Sindhi Studies ( JOSS) is the Sindh region, located in southern Pakistan. However, Sindhis live in other parts of Pakistan as well as in India and across the globe. The journal accepts submissions that address the people of Sindh, regardless of their current geographic location.
JOSS aims to shed interdisciplinary light on the “Sindhi World.” It accepts submissions from all disciplines but prioritizes perspectives from the humanities and interpretive social sciences (e.g., anthropology, history, sociology, geography, literature, art history, and visual studies). The journal’s humanistic and interpretive approach aims to draw submissions into a single comparative forum to analyze, discuss, and understand the many intricate and multilayered contexts that constitute the Sindh region and the lives of its people.
JOSS also approaches Sindhi Studies as a field to address broader questions about society and the human condition, both in the past and present. It privileges submissions that, in addition to Sindh and Sindhis, tackle topics like colonialism and nationalism, integration and marginalization, devotion and institutionalization, vernacularism and cosmopolitanism, and many others. The journal strives toward a better general understanding of the world by addressing it through the lens of Sindhi Studies.

The Journal of Sindhi Studies is a Mission Interdisciplinaire Française du Sindh (MIFS) or Sindhi Studies Group initiative. The journal acknowledges the kind support of the Centre d'Études de l'Inde et de l'Asie du Sud ( CEIAS), jointly administered by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique ( CNRS) and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales ( EHESS). The journal also encourages readers and contributors to join the Sindhi Studies Group’s EHESS blog ( Members of this group are entitled to a 50% discount on the individual subscription rate.

Eighteenth-Century Travellers in South Africa
The establishment of a settlement at the Cape of Good Hope in the seventeenth century and an expansion of the sphere of colonial influence in the eighteenth century made South Africa the only part of sub-Saharan Africa where Europeans could travel with relative ease deep into the interior. As a result individuals with scientific interests in Africa came to the Cape. This book examines writings and drawings of scientifically educated travellers, particularly in the field of ethnography, against the background of commercial and administrative discourses on the Cape. It is argued that the scientific travellers benefited more from their relationship with the colonial order than the other way around.
From Volume 6 (2010), Journal of Conflict Archaeology is published by Maney.
